John has been making and designing a wide range of custom–made furniture, since 1984. He is equally at home working with architects to realise reception area furniture and architectural joinery within the commercial sector, such as The Henry Moore Foundation and Sotheby’s, or with private clients to create kitchen and bedroom furniture.

His background is workshop based and through his interest in The Arts and Craft movement and Mid Century Modern he has developed various ranges with clean, pared-down design, some now produced by the Futon Company.

CHAMFER

Design: Ben Fowler

Drawing its character from a combed chamfer detail, this collection uses an extremely strong and expressive chamfered comb joint. Made using angled cutters to produce an elegant slim tapered leg detail at each corner.

ORB

Design: John Weaver

Once a common detail of British classical furniture, John has re-imagined the ball foot for the 21st century. As a practical and uplifting decorative motif, the ball was recognized by mid century designers as an eye catching component whether in hall stands, clock surrounds, chairs or tables.

LEAN

Design: Simon Pengelly

Lean as its name suggests, riffs on the idea of a raked leg. Simon has taken this classic idea, to its natural conclusion by making a series of products which are entirely defined by the angle of the leg. The end grain runs throughout the tops, tying everything together beautifully.

MANX

Design: Ben Fowler

A three legged table taking its name from the famous Isle of Man triskelion. The three nesting sections emphasise the different wood grains and colours as they sweep round the tops of the tables supported by legs, curved to match the top.
